More Halloween Cupcakes!

 Are you missing an ear, finger, foot or your brains well you might find them here on my cupcakes!
I started with the new fall flavor Maple Syrup and Brown sugar cake mix by Pillsbury and made some homemade vanilla butter cream frosting. I then decorated the cupcakes with seedless red raspberry jam for the blood and gummy body parts. So they might look gross but taste really good!
